Last week, we gave you a sneak peek into Bangkok's shiny new W Bangkokand now we'll pull back the bejeweled curtain and show you the glam rooms. Being in a world-class city, you can expect a new hotel to have all glitz and shine; the W Bangkok doesn't fail the 'come to the party' test with its rooms fit for a jewel smuggler.

From the moment we stepped foot in the door, we knew we were somewhere special. Not only did we notice that 'new hotel' smell--it welcomed guests just 2 months ago--we may have been blinded by the shimmer and sparkle of the rhinestones, like everywhere. We will admit, we like a hotel that can successfully use lots of bling and, in true W style, this hotel has pushed the envelope.

Pulling up to a building emblazoned with a giant 'W' sharing a courtyard with the former Russian Embassy, we geared up for something special. Until we walked in to the amethyst lit lobby, we had not clue what were up against...in a good way.

As mentioned the rooms are super glam with gem-tones and metallics and our 'Oh-face' didn't stop until we played with every bell and whistle, including the make-shift stripper pole next to the bath-tub in the open-plan bathroom.

The entire room is themed to a deep lilac color that matched the hotel lobby. We loved the sequined throw-pillows, flame-trimmed privacy curtain and the stone-art pieces used as a headboard. Overall, the theme of precious stones sprinkled in a boxing ring slapped us in the face and knocked us out.

Room rates start at 5,950 Thai baht ($207) per night.
